Trying to write an introduction for this section is surprisingly difficult. “Unwieldy” might be a better choice of words, actually — I’m looking for something more aerodynamic than “Hey, some stories. I wrote them,” but not something that wears out its welcome. My first short story to be published in some form is called “Weary.” It made an appearance on the website of the now-defunct TNI Books in the early part of this decade. Here’s what happened since.
